Employment Law—Wage Act Claims

Konowitz & Greenberg successfully represented an employee in litigation against his former employer. The employee had not been paid commissions for sales he had made while employed by the defendant/employer which he believed he was entitled to under his compensation agreement. We filed suit against the employer in the Superior Court and asserted claims to recover the unpaid commissions under the Massachusetts Wage Act and common law.

 

After the employer initially refused to make any settlement offers, the parties undertook discovery and filed motions for summary judgment. Following denial by the judge of both parties’ summary judgment motions, the employer agreed to non-binding mediation of the case. At mediation, the parties agreed on a settlement of the matter, with the employer paying in excess of six figures to our client.
